Cuisine of China

China has one of the richest culinary heritages on Earth. Solid Chinese food is eaten with chopsticks and liquid with a wide, flat bottomed spoon (usually ceramic). Chinese consider having a knife at the table as barbaric, so most dishes are prepared in smaller pieces, ready for direct picking and eating.

Because of the large and varied nature of China itself, Chinese cuisine can be broken down into very many different regional styles.

Chinese Buddhist cuisine
Cantonese cuisine
Chiuchow cuisine
Hakka cuisine
Hunan cuisine
Chinese Islamic cuisine
Mandarin cuisine
Shanghai cuisine
Szechuan cuisine
